Case Results

With many criminal defense law firms making bold claims as to their capabilities and results, it can be difficult to discern what is fact and what is fiction.

Common Cases We Handle

Being placed under arrest is more common than most people might think in Michigan, with thousands of individuals being placed under arrest annually. Unfortunately, many of these individuals compound their issues by settling for poor legal representation that results in unnecessarily harsh sentencing and punishment that leaves a permanent scar on the rest of their lives.

Thankfully, with the experience of the Michigan criminal defense attorneys at George law, defendants can have the assurance and peace of mind that they have the best possible chance of a positive outcome in their case. We offer legal defense for felony and misdemeanor offenses, which include but are not limited to the following:

Ferndale DUI & OWI Charges

The State of Michigan has a national reputation as one of the worst states to receive a drunk driving conviction. Out of all the counties in the state, Oakland County is the harshest when it comes to punishing drunk driving offenders. In fact, it is quite common for first time OWI offenders to receive jail time, thanks to the harsh sentencing given out by judges in the county’s district court system, the 43rd District Court. This court handles all DUI arrests in Ferndale and the surrounding communities, as well as a host of other criminal matters.

The court in Ferndale is quite a bit more challenging than other Michigan district courts for individuals charged with drunk driving, due to its location in the county with the harshest drunk driving sentencing in the state. Because of this fact, it is critical that any individual facing OWI/DUI charges in Ferndale seek out experienced legal counsel as soon as possible. Choosing the right DUI Defense Lawyer can be the difference in whether or not your charges will be reduced or even possibly dismissed.

Ferndale District Court

The City of Ferndale is a northern suburb of Metro Detroit located on the southernmost side of Oakland County, occupying just under four square miles and bordering the northern side of the City of Detroit and Wayne County. It is bisected by Woodward Ave, and is one of the primary communities making up the Woodward Corridor. The court that is responsible for handling drunk driving and criminal charges in the Ferndale community is the 43th district court, located on the north side of 9 mile road just east of Woodward Ave.

The 43th District Court handles all types of criminal cases, as well as drunk driving cases. It is made up of three divisions and serves the communities of Madison Heights, Ferndale and Hazel Park. While this may not seem like a large coverage area on paper, due to the population density in these cities the court is always busy with cases.
